Is there anyway i could have the mesa (open source driver) to be shown under additional drivers list and switch between? I know i must remove - purge them normally, i just need it for a quick testing.
I'm now using lxde and i can type faster but still it doesn't respond as it should.
-I have never see a ratio like 1.41 while seeding. I guess all it takes is a good moto...
I ran ATI cards for about 15 years but eventually keeping drivers working, even in Windows, became such a hassle that I went with Nvidia on my last hardware upgrade. I wish they would come up with an elegant solution. When they were bought by AMD I hoped things would change but it seems that they focus on the hardware and drivers/software takes a back seat.
When you find the solution though make sure you tell us about it.
I had desktop effects on ubuntu and ubuntu classic and for some reason they only work on classic.
Any idea what happen to ubuntu and compiz, when I open compiz in ubuntu I can't make any checks.
Possibly needs Alt+f2I had desktop effects on ubuntu and ubuntu classic and for some reason they only work on classic.
I will check mine as we both have similar setups now ........
If you have effects in one they should work in the others too must be one of the compiz settings that's messed up maybe
Am back now .... play scrabble for 2 hours lols ..... and the temps of the Nvidia were great ..... 5 degrees lower than
before ..... the other system was reaching 68 and higher ...... here I am at 63-64 constant .
Drops back to 58-59 after playing scrabble on the Flash game in Firefox .......

In gNatty I may have inadvertently introduced a problem by trying to package both the Nvidia & ATI driver. Purge, remove, uninstall the one that doesn't apply. You may have to use synaptic to completely remove it.
Another thing to try is re-installing compiz.
If you are doing frequent upgrades it's also possible that things got temporarily broken somehow.
Try exploring these suggestions and let us know how it goes.
